Parts Used: Vanilla is native to Mexico and is derived from Vanilla planifolia, the only orchid in the world that produces an edible fruit. The orchid blooms for one day only in which time it has to be hand pollinated -a labour intensive procedure that makes the spice among the costliest in the world.
